80’s all up in that ass!

July 30, 2008

I love T.V. As much shit* as I talk about T.V. now, I still love it. At one point in my T.V. watching career, I had a designated “T.V. Time” (circa ’96 ’97ish) that covered some great stuff. I don’t remember the schedule now, but it was magnificent.

I’m a product of 80’s T.V. In the 90’s is was mostly about looking at videos and playing video games, but the 80’s is where I get my T.V. love from. Look at this shit! Straight 80’s for that ass!

This is that real shit here! Knight Rider was dope, but Street Hawk was the truth. His bike didn’t talk back to him, and act like a punk ass.

Quantum Leap was dope, but before that there was this:

“Green Light Kid!!”

Last one for now, and one of my all time favorites

That’s right. This was on around the same time as Battle Star Galactica, but that was too melancholy for me. I mean damn, fighting the same dudes all the time. Buck Rodgers was out there kicking ass and boning alien chicks (like Cpt. Kirk)

If I left off your favorite 80’s show, drop me a comment and if it’s one I used to watch, I’ll put it up in the next T.V. post.

*T.V. sucks balls now. Fuck “reality” shows and weak ass game shows. The good stuff gets canceled (Arrested Development) and the shit T.V. shows keep running.


I can’t stop.

Ok. By now y’all know I love me some video games. Well, EA just made it harder for me to not love them… or something. I have NCAA College Football ’09. It is, hands down, the best football game I have ever played.

So, EA decides to add a thing they call EA Sports World. It’s an out of game website that gets info from my PS3 NCAA game, and loads it to my own EA web page. When I first heard about this feature (thanks Bones), I was like “meh… I’ll fuck with it some other time”.

I wish I had gotten on sooner. Holy shit it’s great!. It’s not the stat tracking, or the ability to upload game highlight videos straight from the gamebox to the interweb, or the different sports groups I can join.. It’s about the avatar!

so fresh. so clean.

so fresh. so clean.

OH! Look at that shit!!

To those of you who know me, that’s damn accurate, aint it?

I have only loaded one video up there so far, but that will change very soon.

So, if you’re reading this, and you have a dude/chick on EA Sports World, lemme see them.

Here’s a link to the site. I think you can create a profile without owning an EA game. You do need some form of next-gen console and an EA game to add points to your avatar. You add points by playing the game and busting up weak ass chumps.

*** You need a profile up there to look at anybody else’s profile. Even if you hate vidyah-gamez, log on so you can look at my dude. That dude fresh to death!!! ooohhhhhhh. I’ll be putting more videos soon. so fresh.

PROTIP: press buttons to make things happen

This is one of my new top 10 videos of all time. I love cartoons and shit. Puppets are cool too, but not puppets talking to kids. That’s Pedobear creepy.

I need more of this.


What’s Really Good? PS3 vs Xobx 360

July 9, 2008

I was looking for some comparisons between the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 on the interwebs so I could help a good friend make an important choice. Well what I found were lists of technical specs for each console that made about as much sense to me as quantum physics. What I’m going to do is list what I believe to be each system’s pros and cons.

I don’t care about GPU numbers or what ever the hell “3.2 GHz Cell Broadband Engine with PPE & SPEs” means. I’m going to list what is important to me.

game boxes

game boxes

I’m going to start off with Xbox 360.

Pros

  • It’s cheaper than the PS3.
  • It’s been on the market for longer, so it has more games available.
  • Xbox Live is a pretty decent online system for gamers both hardcore and casual
  • The Achievement system is a cool idea. You earn ranking for doing specific tasks in games. The 360 keeps track of your overall ranking for all the games you play.

That’s about all I can think of for 360 Pros. Now the Cons

  • HD-DVD lost the format war. It doesn’t seem that big of a deal now (except to those who bought HD-DVD players) Even still, 360 owners would have to buy an add-on player to even use their HD-DVDs.
  • Tons of needed add-ons. The cheapness of the 360 is offset by the need to purchase MOAR STUFF. Want to connect wirelessly? Buy the 79.99 adapter. Need to save your games? Buy the 20GB HDD.
  • You have to pay for Xbox Live online. If you don’t care about playing online with others, then don’t worry about this one, but YOU need to.
  • Red Ring of Doom. According to my internets searching, 17% of all 360s die at the hands of the Red Ring of Doom.
  • The controllers take batteries. I hate buying batteries.

Ok, there goes that. Now on to the Playstation 3

Pros

  • Everything you need to make it do everything it can is built into the console.(except it doesn’t come with HDMI cables. fucking Sony)
  • The PS3 online system is almost identical to the 360’s with one difference, it’s free.
  • Surfing the internets. The 360 does not have a web browesr, PS3 does. You can pause the game and connect to the interweb and look up porn.
  • Trophies = the PS3 equivalent to 360’s Achievements, but for free.
  • The PS3 runs Blu-ray. At first this wasn’t a big deal to me, until I read up on what the hell Blu-ray is. Mostly it’s a bunch of numbers, but Blu-ray is better. Much better.
  • If you have or have thought about getting a PSP, it just adds a whole new level to the PS3. The list of PSP-PS3 synergy could take up it’s own post.
  • I have one, and I play mad games. I also take on all challengers. (anyone with a PS3 reading this, I play Call of Duty 4, Grand Theft Auto 4, Metal Gear Solid 4, NCAA 09*, and Armored Core 4. Email or comment with your PSN, and I’ll gladly do battle)
  • Extra personal pro. The exclusive titles for the PS3 were more appealing to me than the 360 exclusives. (Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo5, and ratchet and Clank series)

Ok, the Cons

  • It’s expensive as fuck. I could have gotten 4 hookers, a large pizza, and some bubble gum for the price of the PS3. The 360 is cheaper (not including the needed add-ons)
  • The game box itself is pretty big.
  • It’s fucking expensive as hell.

There you go. Enough facts, mixed in with super biased opinion, to make a choice. But for reals, get down with the PS3, we’re waiting to start up the Dynasty.


I’m Tired of THEIR Shit

July 8, 2008

Ok. What in the fucking hell is the deal with people and homophones? Am I wrong in thinking that they were taught in like the 3rd and 4th grade? I will admit that I am not the greatest speller ever. I’m not even close to average. When the spell check goes down, I’m in trouble. All that aside, I know how to use the words I can spell.

Of all my travels through the interwebs, nothing pisses me off more than the misuse of the following words, and by adults no less. This is some grade school shit. Stupid bastards. People reading this, please share this shit.

THEIR – shows ownership -> That is THEIR boat.

THERE – that one is for location -> Look over THERE!

THEY’RE – this one is tricky. it is a contraction of THEY ARE -> Holy shit THEY’RE running away.

Here’s another set.

TWO – the damn number -> I have TWO dollars.

TO – can be used a few ways, most involve transition -> He went from one TO seven. or I’m going TO the strip club. Who does that belong TO?

TOO – I forget what people call it, but it’s when you have an extreme or something -> He talks TOO much. Her ass is TOO small. My wallet is TOO full of cash, and my diamond shoes are TOO tight.

One more. This one pisses me off to no end.

YOUR – shows ownership -> That’s YOUR crusty sock.

YOU’RE – another contraction! This one means YOU ARE. -> YOU’RE a sexy beast CarolinaHaze.

Folks reading this crap, do me a favor and memorize these words, and use them the right way. For fuck’s sake, please!!
